Amanda, could I have some Senecio seeds please, I have never grown them before from seed, they seem to fill a nice big space.

I have your stachys lambs ears ready now.

Lovely harvest well done, 

Is it your first year?


What do you do with baby foxgloves and lupins?

Posted: 26/07/2014 at 12:29

No need to pot on those lupins yet, wait til they fill the pot a bit more, leave outside now and put in the greenhouse in about October/ november. Any of the perennials are best kept over winter and grown on as a stronger plant.

I wouldnt put the lupins out, they are not hardy in the first year.

Mine are just sitting outside on shelves and will be overwintered in a frost free greenhouse or maybe a plastic one.

The foxgloves can go out in the ground and they will die back and come up next Spring.

You will need to keep watering them until the are well rooted down.

Just collected Borage seeds, got to be one of the best for bees, very easy to grow next spring.

About the only thing I know of is to pick them off by hand and squish.

Its a good idea to put a very fine mesh cage over them to stop the butterfly laying eggs on the leaves.

I got yours yesterday Victoria, planted up and looking good. Thank you so much.

I have some very dark blue delphiniums collected now.

Andy, I have some delph seeds and am waiting to catch some white foxglove seeds, maybe some apricot ones later.

Victoria, could you describe how a plant looks when its about to throw up?

I think it may well survive, put it in some new compost and tuck it away. Dont feed it though.
